What people don't realize

Ever since the news broke out that the S5 will be coming out people were disappointed that three was not enough amo in the phone to switch from the S4. There is a reason for that. Samsungs goal was to to sway away S4 to the S5. Remember phone companies base their production on 2 year contracts. Therefore rather than S4 users they are appealing to the S2 or S3 users. For them the S5 will be a big deal and a huge upgrade. Same thing goes for Apple when the go to Iphone 5 to 5S users were not wowed. The reason is because the Iphone 5 user is is not ready for an upgrade until the 6 comes out. That is when the difference is huge.

Refferal fee for AT&T feild reps

Good afternoon, my name is Curtis Matthews and I am with the Small Business Department (VSC).
I am happy to help you with any other changes that may be needed to your accounts.
A little background about me is that I have been involved in the wireless industry since the Bellsouth Mobility days so feel free to reach out to me with anything you may need. I make my money by upgrades (2yr, Next, Full Retail), ama’s, gross adds.

I am paying a referral fee for upgrades this March 2014 $3 per upgrade and I do all the processing. Any account I get revenue from that was referred by you I will do rerates.
I have a toll free direct line to my desk from 9-6 EST written below. I hope you have a wonderful day!

Thank You,

Data plans

Am I missing something? Why does ATT only offer a 5GB/$50 plan for hotspots and other internet devices?

I don't need 5GB and I don't want to pay $50/month. I was looking for something like T-Mobile's 2GB/$30 data plan.

Why no LTE on my Gophone

I just activated a prepaid GS3 and thought ATT opened up LTE to their prepaid customers. I'm in a LTE area, but my phones not showing it anywhere.

Question about unlimited data

Hi guys. Very long time since last post... Anyway, I just went from iPhone 4s to a 5s. Is the unlimited (yes , I'm grandfathered in) still 3GB on LTE? I don't remember where I read that it's 5GB (since it's faster) anyone can show this in black and white?

Samsung Battery Compatibility Question

Hi I own a Samsung Galaxy Express. What I wanted to know are all battery compartments on all Samsung the same. The reason I ask is there are other Samsung phones that have higher mAh. So if I bought a battery for say a Galaxy Mega or S4 will it fit and work in my phone? So it can give the phone higher power like an extended battery used to do but still looking like the phone intended to be but with more power. Thanks.

What happened!?! Ported out...

I have an ATT phone so I ordered a SIM card only, entered all the info to port out of VZW.
SIM card isn't supposed to arrive for a couple days, but my current VZW phone quit working yesterday. Confused
As if someone completed the port out already. But usually you need to actually put the SIM card into the new phone before you loose service on your old phone.

Little miffed that I'm without service for a few days.

Internet content filters

Hi, I'm hoping for some advice on internet content filters. I prefer basic, inexpensive phones; I've had a Sony Ericsson W518a for a couple years and been satisfied with the phone and its limited mobile email and internet capability. However, recently the Yahoo format was changed such that there are no content filters available. So I am seeking a new, At&t supported phone with some web access and reliable content filters. Does anyone know of a way of trying out the relevant features of a phone before purchase (or an online simulation)? Or failing that, does anyone know of specific models to recommend? I am an "authorized user" in a family plan with eligibility for a "free upgrade" so I suppose that affects which models would be availab...

I'm planning to join AT&T!!

I'm pretty excited about this. I live in an area that has a huge white hole for Sprint service. I've put up with it for the past 3 years since I have a 4 line family plan and the others live a few hours away but I've finally had enough.

Anyway, I'm planning on going with the 10GB/month (I think, maybe it was 6 or 8?). And I'm going to tie it to my home U-verse account.

Are there any benefits to getting an AT&T number versus porting over my Sprint number? Other than the obvious everyone still has my number.

How about any other sites/forums for AT&T users? I used to go to but it seems to have closed down or something. I can't post there anymore and hardly anyone posts on it.

This should all be happening i...

Thinking Of Switching

Hey All

I am sure you've read posts like this before...I am a current Verizon customer and was thinking of switching over to ATT since my contract is now up. My folks would add me to their Family Share plan but was wondering what actual ATT customers think about the service? Am I better off not switching...I am hearing different stories from different people. I currently live in the Boston area

Is AT&T launching AIO Wireless

I have received word from people in the wireless market are going to launch AIO Wireless in order to counter T-mobile/Metropcs merger. The merger between metro and t-mobile will give the prepaid carrier a chance to compete in the GSM prepaid market. I hear AT&T is going to pre-empt this by launching their own version of an all in one monthly unlimited plan.

Does anyone have any info and how we can get in touch to consider becoming a dealer?

Hey All (Used to be Nextel18)

Hello all,

Not sure if you all remember me, but I used to be Nextel18. Since I didn’t remember the password I decided to change it to this handle. I decided to switch from Sprint/Nextel to AT&T to T-Mobile USA. I can tell you that I have been getting much better speeds and services on T-Mobile USA than on Sprint and AT&T Combined. I never thought in a million years I’d go to T-Mobile USA but hey it has happened.

Just wanted to say hey to all my critics, and friends whom I spoke to over the many years that I have been on these forums.
